Har­vard group opens ‘school’ for anti-Trump ac­tivism

The Washington Times Daily - - NATION - — Dou­glas Ernst

A group of Har­vard Univer­sity grad­u­ate stu­dents has launched a “Re­sis­tance School” for ac­tivists who want to com­bat Pres­i­dent Trump’s agenda.

Dis­traught pro­fes­sors and stu­dents at the elite Cam­bridge univer­sity met af­ter Mr. Trump’s elec­tion vic­tory in Novem­ber to dis­cuss their re­ac­tions.

From those meet­ings “Re­sis­tance School” was born, which will in­clude four in-per­son and live-streamed ses­sions for ac­tivists.

“On Novem­ber 8, we lost more than just the pres­i­dency,” the group’s web­site says. “We lost yet more ground in the decades-long cam­paign against pro­gres­sive val­ues. Repub­li­cans now con­trol the Se­nate, House, and more state leg­is­la­tures than they have in al­most 200 years. Those losses have em­bold­ened the right to launch an all­out at­tack against our na­tion’s creed — that all are cre­ated equal.”
